HSE Personalised Budgets Demonstration Projects Pilot: call for participants.

The HSE is looking for people with disabilities to take part in phase 2 (starting in September 2020) of a two-year Personalised Budgets Demonstration Project Pilot.

What is a Personalised Budget?

Personalised Budgets can provide individuals with disabilities with more choice and control over the services and supports they receive.  A personalised budget is an amount of funding that a disabled person may be considered for by the HSE. If a person qualifies for a Personalised Budget they can make their own arrangements to meet their support needs, instead of having their needs met directly for them by the HSE and HSE-funded service-providers.

Who can apply?
  • People with a disability who are currently in receipt of HSE-funded services, either provided directly by the HSE or through the non-statutory sector (day services, residential services, respite services, rehabilitative training or personal assistance).
  • Younger people with disabilities who are leaving school in 2020 and have a commitment to a funded day service can also apply.

A call for Expressions of Interest opens on 27th July and closes on the extended deadline date of  7th September 2020. Expression of Interest Form
